  • May our lives be filled with ‘thanks’ and ‘giving’

    Thanksgiving is a time when we Americans gather together with family and friends enjoying a feast as we reflect on the things in life in which we are grateful.  

    1 Thessalonians 5:18 states, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”  It doesn’t say give thanks once a year, or rejoice only for the things you are grateful for.  It simply states, “In every thing... give thanks.”
